JCS began in 1858 with a group of volunteers eager to help and has grown into a professional charity that provides innovative, individual care. At the heart of everything we do is a respect for Jewish culture and beliefs. We are the only exclusively Jewish care charity in Scotland, and thus uniquely able to provide these culturally sensitive services. Alongside our long-running Day Care centre we provide a wide range of services for the Jewish community, from a Kosher foodbank to care and assessment and everything in between.
We work in partnership with East Renfrewshire Health & Social Care Partnership as well as many other community organisations to provide our services and also benefit from voluntary input by our dedicated volunteers.
Ultimately, we are here to provide a helping hand to our community in order to promote independence, keep people connected and support those in crisis to ensure that no one is left vulnerable or isolated.
